There has been a lot of speculation and discussion regarding Roger planning to change his band for the upcoming tour,
Entitled Us & Them the new tour kicks off on the 26th May at the Mo Sprint Center, Kansas City, the tour is based loosely around Rogers career with Pink Floyd and as a solo artist, We cannot confirm how much material will be from his career as a solo artist but with a new album Is This The Life We Really Want? coming to our shelves on the 2nd June we can assume a fair portion will be from this long anticipated release.
Those who followed Wednesdays “Time Talks” Conversation with Roger and Jon Pareles will have seen that it has been confirmed the touring band has indeed had a drastic change and we will no longer see some familiar faces we have been acustomed to over the years.

The familiar faces include Ian Ritchie (Saxophone), Jon Carin (Keyboards/Guitars/Vocals/Lapsteel), Dave Kilminster (Lead Guitar)
We have managed to find some new information regarding the upcoming release of David Gilmour : Live at Pompeii from a blog article written by Italian Journalist Francesco Prisco .
“So the fact is: The DVD / Blu-ray filming David Gilmour’s gesture in the two return concerts on Pompeii will be released early next November .Until now, the only official news circulated about the product concerns the installation of an hour in 4k by Gavin Elder’s signature of the English company DCD Rights.This is a two-day event that the Cambridge guitarist on the 7th and 8th of July 2016 held in the Vesuvius amphitheater 45 years away from the Rockumentary realized with Pink Floyd and directed by Adrian Maben.Negotiations are under way for the sale of television rights to the work – here in Italy could end up on Sky Arts – but the idea of production is to sell Dvd and Blu ray by David Gilmour: Live at Pompeii, Beginning of November.The Superintendent of the Pompeii Excavations, as agreed by the parties, will receive royalties from the sale of the work.Floydian friends will still have something to put under the Christmas tree this year.”
On Wednesday evening, New York Times music critic John Pareles and Roger Waters were joined by an audience of 350 for a live interview as part of The New York Times’ TimesTalks series at New York City’s Florence Gould Hall. The interview spanned discussions about the scale Pink Floyd brought to rock music, Waters’ upcoming new album, American politics, and many other topics.

Roger Waters has announced that he’ll release his first studio album in 25 years in June.
Titled Is This The Life We Really Want?, it will launch on June 2 via Columbia Records. It’ll be the former Pink Floyd member’s first studio album since 1992’s Amused To Death.
A statement reads: “Roger Waters’ last studio album Amused To Death was a prescient study of popular culture, exploring the power of television in the era of the First Gulf War.“
The long-awaited follow-up, 2017’s Is This The Life We Really Want?, is an unflinching commentary on the modern world and uncertain times.“Waters’ forthcoming LP serves as a natural successor to classic Pink Floyd albums such as Animals and The Wall.”
The album was produced and mixed by Nigel Godrich and includes 12 new musical compositions and studio performances from Waters.Joining Waters and Godrich on the record are Gus Seyffert, Jonathan Wilson, Joey Waronker, Roger Manning, Lee Pardini, Lucius, Jessica Wolfe and Holly Proctor.
The album will be releases in a double 180-gram vinyl LP in a gatefold jacket and a four-panel soft pack CD. All album formats, physical and digital, are now available to pre-order via Amazon and Itunes.
While we cannot confirm the band lineup for Roger’s upcoming Us & Them tour we can confirm the personnel for the album.
